    Why would the docs add more chemo and radiation?

      I had the opposite happen to me during my first treatment and diagnosis. I went through the scheduled chemo, then started radiation, the radiation was stopped before the scheduled number because they said my lymph nodes had shrunk to the point of not feeling them anymore and I didn't need it.

      About 6 months later the cancer returned in the other side of my neck. So I have always wondered what if I had gotten those other treatments, would I have had a recurrence?

      Thank you all so much for your answers and support. The radiation machine was down one time so he missed one treatment. I like the option of better to extend it now rather than later. Neck surgery will follow so might as well get all the chemo/radiation over with.
